Warm is good.....hot is bad.

I'll just try.
If it's getting too hot, I will make an U-shaped profile for more cooling. Which also shields the transformers...hmmm nice...
must get some sleep now... thanks everybody.

I have built two discret bridges per channel using on semiconductor's mur3020wt diodes. They are slightly warmer side with bias of 0.6A/ device. Used small heatsink. As per datasheet it dissipates 1W for 2A forward current. Here diodes are conducting less than ampere per cycle, so dissipation is less than 0.4W / diode.

Very wrong also.

At 50/60Hz mains, the caps are charged 100/120 times a second.
But each charge period does not last 1/100th or 1/120th of a second.

Charge current will only flow when charging voltage exceeds cap voltage level.
So only a tiny portion of the sinus slope is available for restocking the lytics.

If you calculate the ripple level for the smoothing cap number per rail and the bias level you have chosen, the lowest rail voltage level follows.

The sinus slope then tells at which point the diodes start conducting, from there till the sinus peak and back is the charging period.

Average charge current x charge period x 100 (or 120) ~ bias level (remember : VxI = VA ~ W = Joule per second)

For the MUR3020 : 1A x 0.6Vf x 1s < 10A x 0.92Vf x 0.1s

ah now I get it: 0,6 J/s is smaller then 0,92J/s

I hope very very soon..
the DIYAUDIO ways are mysterious,
but the end result is always fabulous!

:-) Happy Easter!
